Here's a look at our scanner and lighting set up.
We're using the i2S CopiBook scanner and two free standing flourescent lights.
We are immediately sending the scans to a remote server in a different office. If we need to recall images we can do that from a workstation in the scanning room that is logged into the same remote server. We chose this route instead of scanning to the work station mainly b/c the computer could not recognize the scanner. We would eventually move all the image files to the remote server, so it did make sense to push the scans directly to the server.
The scanner captures two images in seconds. I was expecting about 100 scans per hour. Some student operators are very efficient at scanning and can capture close to 200 high scans per hour with few to no mistakes.
We've had some problems in the past with this scanner. We have a software upgrade to schedule in the near future. Once the software is loaded I hope the scanner runs smoothly for the duration of the project. That's wishful thinking, but I'm hopeful.
